I was listening to a book and heard a couch referred to as a chesterfield. That reminded me that that's what couches were called when I was little. Then they were called sofas and sometimes still are, but mostly they are couches now.
But that also reminded me that people used to refer to a refrigerator as a Frigidaire. That was a brand name but was kind of like people calling all soft drinks "cokes."
